"Hi, I’ve just come back from a yoga/hike week in Madeira (8th-15th August) and had a brilliant time. I wanted to highlight Marie (yoga) and Chloe (food) for running the week impeccably, being so approachable, warm and welcoming and going above and beyond to make sure we were looked after and had a great time.
It was the perfect getaway with lovely yogis. It was just what I needed.
From my initial contact with AY to leaving my experience has been of the highest quality. Thank you all."
